The Detroit Lions, losers of their last three games, are hoping some time off to nurse their wounds will help and their bye week could not have come at a better time.
While all their losses have been by eight points or less, the continued losses have to take a toll on the players and coaches and, with their next two games on the road against top opponents (the Eagles on Oct. 14th and the Bears on Oct 22nd) things are not going to get easier.
“The bye is about enjoying time away,” WR Nate Burleson said. “But in the back of your mind, understand where we are as a team. We’re not going into the bye feared by every other team in the NFL, we’re going into the bye forgotten. We need to come back angry for Week 6. We have to prove something”
We will see if the Lions can bounce back in Philly. In the meantime, be sure to secure your tickets for the next home game against the Seattle Seahawks on October 28th and help to cheer your Lions to victory!
